Creaky Musical
30 October 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film has been issued as part of the British Musicals of the Thirties series.Though it really more a comedy at least nominally.There are 2 musical numbers early in the film.However they are poorly staged and the first number is partly out of focus.They also suffer from poor sound recording.The film is directed by Monty Banks who had a lot of experience directing comedies in Hollywood.Maybe this accounts for the overreacted performance of some actors,in particular Bobby Bowes.He mugs his way throughout the film.It really becomes tiresome in particular the scene with the vase.It just seems to go on forever.The only familiar actor is Wylie Watson,Mr Memory from the Hitchcock version of The 39 Steps.
